What a perfect day for a poll!

For the longest time — and I refuse to admit just how long — I would smile and nod anytime I heard or read the words “crowd sourcing” (yes, yes I do nod and smile to myself while I read. Oh, come on, so do you.) However, I really had no idea what it meant. Who knew it really just means “use the internet to ask peers, friends, relatives, complete strangers, anybody really, to help you figure out information useful to your marketing strategy.” Huh.

Good stuff — although I think it sounds a little cold. The reality is, I’m asking you for help. I wrote a blog post about the importance of being specific when asking the universe for a favor, and realized that I wanted more clarity around how to describe and market my work. Hence: the following polls. 

(As a point of reference: these polls are about my artwork — which can be viewed on my website.)

Thank you in advance for you time, and for your consideration!

  1. The thing with this poll – all of the questions you ask all apply; so this really does not narrow anything down so much as it states the viewer’s perception.

    • Hmmmmm…Liz, interesting, I guess I was looking for the viewer’s perception to help me narrow things down? But now you’re making me think that a more open-ended poll might be better, so that I could solicit descriptive words from people so inclined to contribute…that might give me a much better idea of how my work is perceived…hmmmmmmmm.
